Quoting Quiverfull: Depriving the World Out of Future Dynasties?

by Colin Campbell of Meat For Men – He Has a Generation Mindset

Every child we stop from coming into this world, not only deprives the world of that child who has the potential to become a powerful influence for righteousness if brought up in the fear and admonition of the Lord, but also deprives the world of future dynasties.

What would have happened if Abraham had not believed God for Isaac? What would the world have been deprived of if Jacob did not want to receive twelve sons? There would never have been a Bible containing both the Old and New Testaments. The whole of our Judeo biblical roots would be non-existent, including the birth of Christ who came to save us from our sins.

Who do we think we are to play God and decide who should be conceived and born and who should not be born? It would be better for us to remain single if we hold the notion that married couples can use whatever means they want to limit the godly seed. God makes in clear in Malachi 2:15 that He seeks godly offspring from the marriage union. Godly offspring will restrain evil and fill the earth with God’s glory (Numbers 14:21).

    Matthew 3:9 “And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham.”

    In the NT, God doesn’t care about dynasties.

    I have to give him credit, some people need pages to include that much stupid, he manages to do so in just a few paragraphs.
    First of all, “godly seed” makes my blood boil. If I started to refer to my bodily excretions as sacred, I’d be rightly laughed at. There’s nothing godly/sacred about sperm and in fact that’s really kind of gross.
    Second, dynasties? Really? On the scale of human problems this ranks along the same lines as my invisible unicorn having magical fleas.
    Third, if you really believe that God is omnipotent, then God is going to make sure that a certain person is born. Jesus wouldn’t exist? Really? It’s the same stupid argument as “what if Mary had an abortion.” (Since she was in her early teens, a miscarriage would be much more probable). An omnipotent God would make sure the pregnancy was in a woman who wanted the child and wouldn’t have any complications. However, I think these people worship their “seed” much more than any deity.

    It gives my inner 12 year old a serious case of the giggles.

    Erm, isn’t staying single and sexless another way of taking family planning into your own hands? This seems a weird line for them to draw in their own nonsense.

    You know what *wouldn’t* have happened it Abraham “hadn’t believed god for Issac”? That entire situation where he was mere seconds from sacrificing his son.

    God supposedly knocked up a virgin. If he really wanted a certain woman to reproduce, he could easily work around birth control.

  • Baby_Raptor

    Well, god *did* knock up Mary before she was married off and no longer virginal. So technically, a woman being single isn’t a barrier to god raping women if he wants to.

    Leaving aside his obvious xenophobia, this man is oblivious to the value of free thought & higher education, which is really a cornerstone of western civilization.

  • persephone

    You don’t need free thought or higher education to get into the kingdom of heaven. The less educated, the better.

    Okay but seriously, under this model single people aren’t supposed to be sexually active. Any kids they potentially might have had are now POOF! gone. How’s that any different, dynasty-wise, from married folks limiting their offspring by planning their pregnancies?
